RIPS® Bite-Size Pieces


Good to the last bite! RIPPLY has licorice in the bag with his RIPS® Bite-Size licorice pieces. Easy to eat and hard to put down, these bite-size pieces pack a powerful flavor combination. Our slightly sour licorice is sugar sanded for a burst of intense sweet and sour flavor. You can’t eat just one! Flavors include: Strawberry & Green Apple, Peelable Rainbow, Mango Chili, Cherry, Rippin’ Reds® and Watermelon.

RIP Rolls®

RIPPLY was on a roll when he invented our sweet and slightly sour Rip ROLLS®. You’ll love the sweet sugar combined with the sour fruity goodness in this awesome licorice experience! The taste is intense, so buckle up and get ready for the ride! Rip ROLLS® are available in these flavors: Strawberry, Blue Raspberry, Green Apple, Watermelon, Rainbow Reaction, and Cherry.


Everyone will LOVE the NEW RIPS® Strawberry GIANT Belt! The GIANT Belt features 3.4 oz. of the same great taste as the RIPS® Strawberry Bite-Size licorice, just much longer!

Hello! RIPPLY here doing what I do best: revolutionizing the licorice candy game. But it hasn’t been all fun and piles of sugar for me. Not long ago I was just a sliver of my former self. Folks said I was too small to invent intense fruit flavored candy in a dazzling array of flavors and colors. But that was my dream. I wanted it so badly I could taste it. Thanks to the good folks that work here, I can live my dream and share my love of licorice with everyone! My RIPS® Bite-Size Licorice and Rip ROLLS® are works of sugar-coated art that look (in my opinion) as good as they taste. Believe it or not, we’ve got more licorice innovations just waiting for you to try!
